It'll be a Cingular exclusive for about three months. The sales guide I got today lists it with a full retail price of $650, two year of $550. Will probably be out in early October.

Does the sales guide mention anything about voice dialing? More importantly, does it mention anything about the phone's bluetooth capabilities and the ability to use voice dialing in conjunction with a blue tooth headset? File transfer via bluetooth?

That is a very high price even if the phone has all of the above features. Absolutely a waste of money & unimaginable if it doesn't support them...

Let us know if you can 😁

It does have voice dialing, it works better than any other phone i've had in my lab. I tested the bluetooth and i had connection up to the 110 foot range. let me know if you have any other questions. sdpeavey@yahoo.com

I am not a phonenik---but a simple lawyer who lacks any technical knowledge ( I mean zero, 0, nothing) and could care less about 99% of the gadgets that come with the new phones. My only requirements for a phone are (1) excellent reception, (2) really good volume and (3) Blue Tooth (I don't intend to connect with anything other than my own phone but I really like the wireless concept since I talk so much in my car).
I have an LG now and (a) I lose many calls, (b) on many, many calls I can't hear the other person although he/she/it can hear me sometimes, and (c) in many areas of my city the reception goes in and out. I am with Cingular---and have been having most of the problems since I got the LG and had to be on the new GSM system.I reall...

Hey there,
I work in Cingular customer service ( 🙄 ) and thought you might like a little bit of info. The LG phones are really not too much to boast about, and I am not aware of anyone that recommends them in my immediate circle of associates. As far as reception goes, the difference between any type of phone is really not that big of a difference. It basically all just depends on the area you are in, (whether certain objects such as pine trees, etc. obstruct your signal) and the particular phone's ability to pull from a tower with sufficient signal. The Motorola phones usually seem to do this better than most other phones with the exception of Nokia and Ericsson. If you are looking for a phone with good reception and with BlueTo...

When you mention "sound quality on the speaker" are you referring to (a) volume of sound or (b) quality of sound when using the phone as a speaker phone?

Don't get me wrong----I have been a Cingular subscriber for probably 10 years. I live in Galveston, Texas---it's an Island---no pine trees or tall buildings---only oleanders and palms . But I have the same problems with reception in Houston. Everybody I talk to has some minor problems with the Cingular GSM but my problems seem to happen far more frequently.

I should have followed the advice in Consumer Report's article that said I should keep my phone and the present system for another year or so. But I wanted to upgrade---I can't remember why except there must have been a better deal...

🤣 I have had many Mototola's, and neither speaker nor speaker phone sound quality was too great, but I was referring to the sound on speaker phone mode. If you continue to have these problems we now have a new system (for which I am training for right now 🙄 ) that allows us to create "cases" for such issues and our technical team can investigate it and see if there is a major service issue in your area or if it's just your phone... in all honesty it's probably both... but the Razr is a fine phone, and I think it would be a wise investment... my favorite thing about it... take it back if it doesn't work... and just keep trading up phones until you find the one you like 😉 .. but honestly I think it would be worth the money, I ...

I just wanted to add that I agree that your current LG phones are not going to be the "crem de la crem" of signal strength. I am a Cingular Rep in Washington state, and I've never had a good signal with the LG's, specifically the 4010 and 4050. The newer LG's don't seem to be as bad, but compared to my Motorola V600 there's really no comparison. And as far as the Sony Ericcsons go, I haven't had good experiences with them either. The only one that I've used personally was the T616. In my house I had 1-3 bars (signal) with the 616 and with my Motorola I consistantly have 4-5 bars. So I would definately recommend a Motorola, even though the ear volume is supposedly inadequate (it's seems to be fine for me...). In your situation I would ...

I just wanted to thank you and Rachel for the information. I have been reading the Forum for six or seven phones (plus several Reviews) for several weeks and, except for opinions like when various phones are going to be released, etc., most of the information has been far too technical for me.

For a non-technie who just wants to use his phone as a phone, the info you and Rachel supplied is superb.

One last question---since both the V551 and the Razr will have more bells and whistles then I will need, or use, why are both you and Rachel suggesting the V551 over the Razr for a phone illiterate like me.

Thank you very much! Well, like boricua365 said, the Ericsson might not be a good option because the Motorola gets better strength than that one, not to mention the battery life, plus most of them have just as many bells and whistles as the Motorola (the camera, the ringtones, the remote control car). However unfortunate though you are not going to find a phone with BlueTooth that does not have a lot of useless gadgets on it for you, simply because of the marketing demand for the cameras, etc., but you might find that you like the camera and the MP3 music tones 😉. If you want to get one now the Nokia 6620 is out and it is BlueTooth, but then again if you read the specs on it, it has just as many features plus one or two extra that...

Although the prices aren't out yet, the Razr will be much more expensive than the V551 because it's a newer and thinner design and it's sleek anodized metal casing, while the V551 follows the design of other Motorola phones (V400, V500, V600). But they both have bluetooth... That was the only reason I suggested that. Either one would be pretty comparable.

Hey Hey...Phoneking from Cincinnati here! 😁 I too also work for cingular (a reseller, actually), and am looking forward to the RAZR (I won one in the Motorola Contest). Rachel, we've been having LOTS of problems with the Ericssons (I highly do NOT recommend them, although I did like the T616). Most of our best sellers have been the Motorolas and Samsungs. I haven't had any problems with my V400 until recently and bought the V600 from my ex-girlfriend for $50 (which I'm using, along with the N-Gage QD).

Questions, Let me know! 😁

Da Phoneking has Spoken!
